president obama and governor christie today in new jersey. chuck, tell us what the trip felt like. when i look at those two men together, it looks to me as the way that not necessarily on this particular subject but it's the way serious men and women of government want to work together regardless of part y. and the whole day seemed to have that sensation to it. >> well, it did. and let me tell you something about christie. he just seemed like an exhausted guy. he struck me as somebody who had been up for a couple of straight days, who was numb, a little emotional to what he'd been seeing but also numb to the destruction he'd been seeing. so you know, it was interesting. when the president walked out of air force one there was only one guy to greet him, and it was christie. and then the two of them just immediately, you could tell, were just -- seemed to -- they suddenly became inseparable, and then you never saw more than a foot of actual physical distance between the two of them. you know, they worked the shelter together and all this stuff. so it was a -- it certainly was -- it was busi
